The new nano reef

47 posts in this topic

I stood in front of this begging it not to turn into a green mess.  Do you thing that well help?  29 gallons corelife bio-cube. Will move the fish in a couple days just need to get the water temps to match. Before I move the other rocks and corals need to do a peroxide dip to kill off green mess.

Hubby was not even mad. He said he knew this was coming.  LOL

Way to go, both you AND hubby. 

 

I suspect that everybody in the water likes the green mess, just not us humans, heh.

 

A UV light can help, but for me it was just a temporary crutch, and now I go without.

 

When I had a tank I put up a dark stick-on background and let the diatoms grow wild on that side, you couldn't see them. I kept the other 3 glass sides as clean as possible.

The back is black on this type tank cause the filter is the back area of the tank.  

So I now have everything from the 14 in the 29. Might should of waited but I added to much peroxide to the 14 and corals were not looking to good. Some were slimy and I know that is not good. So clean up the rock the best I could and moved it.

I also had some floss in the back of the 14 gallon that was due to change out Monday with water change. Hopefully it has some stuff in it to help jump the cycle.

New pictures in a couple days when the water clears.

With my track record it is just going to be a bigger tank full of fuzzy green stuff. lol

Got out the SLR and tried to take some pictures.  Need to make some adjustments cause it is not showing the colors very well.

I moved the corals that were not doing to well back to the 14 doing great now along with all the hair algae.  Once I get the 30 doing right Ill clean them up and move them again.

The fish and coral left in the 30 are doing ok.  Think the tank is too clean from being 10 days old.  So added some reef supplement this morning. 

Picture from yesterday.  See my nice pretty diatoms growing on the gravel and rock.  Grrrrr Wish I knew how to get it off the sand without taking sand out.

Made some adjustments to the new light.  Moved corals back to the 29 they are all doing much better.  Ill see about a couple pictures today.  Wish I could figure this SLR out so I get better pictures.  Oh well.  Ill use the point and shot.

I like them too and so far they are not mean to each other so a good pair.  My next and last fish is going to be a flame hawkfish. This is one on youtube. Not my video or my fish but this is what they all look like have to let my tank age before I can add it.  Maybe 6 months or longer.

Or maybe not. These guys are mean. lol Edited by Hidr
